One of my all-time favorite pasta that my family loves is a roasted veggie pasta that I make often. I keep the ratio of veggies to pasta very high with more veggies and less pasta which equals more good for you veggies in every bite.
About the recipe
With roasted veggies you don’t need anything else. Just a little garlic, red pepper flakes, salt and olive oil. That’s it. A wide variety of veggies get roasted for this pasta and release a lovely sweet caramelized flavor that gives the dish it’s wonderful taste.
Use a little of this and little of that – veggies that is
This is a great way to use up a large quantity of veggies especially if you have a little of this and a little of that. Have a couple of carrots? Roast it in here. Have a pepper or two, a small broccoli bunch, or two zucchinis? Roast all these veggies for a delicious pasta that everyone will love!
